AP Art History

ED_school_AP21

The Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts invites local high school students to apply to its Advanced Placement Art History course, offered free of charge.  In this global survey class that meets daily in the Museum library, students explore the creations of a variety of eras and cultures.  Key skills the class builds over the course of the year include identifying works of art, comparing works from different cultures, and examining influences, artist choices, traditions, and innovations.  Art is explored as a reflection of larger cultural trends, and the class has the advantage of being able to interact with the Museum’s collections, exhibitions, and visiting speakers.  Most of all the art history class is an exciting introduction to the art and architecture of the globe and a unique chance to enjoy a seminar style class with students from other schools,  Interested students should contact Alice Novak, anovak@mmfa.org, 334.240.4361.  Download the AP Art History application here.

Teen programs are sponsored by the 2015 Junior Executive Board.

 

Junior Curators
